What Are the Steps to Making a Mustache Necklace?

To make a mustache necklace, flatten a small piece of clay, cut it into a mustache shape, bake it and attach a chain. This two-hour project requires polymer clay, an oven, a baking sheet, parchment paper, an awl, a knife, jump rings, a chain, needle nose pliers and a clasp.

  1. Cut and shape the clay

    Cut a piece of polymer clay that is the approximate size of your little finger. Place the clay on a flat work surface. Roll it into a smooth tube. Flatten it into a rectangle, and cut it into a mustache shape. Use an awl to poke two holes near the top of the mustache.

  2. Bake the clay

    Put the clay mustache on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake it according to the clay manufacturer's instructions. Remove the baking sheet. Turn off the oven, and wait for the clay to cool.

  3. Attach jump rings

    Open two jump rings with pliers, and insert them in the awl holes.

  4. Attach the chain

    Attach a chain to each jump ring, and close the rings with pliers.

  5. Attach the clasp

    Open a jump ring, and thread it through the hole of a jewelry clasp. Hook the jump ring through the free end of one of the necklace chains, and squeeze it closed with pliers. Open another jump ring, and attach it to the end of the other chain.
